Last week, German Chancellor Angela Merkel voiced “full solidarity” with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, who earlier suggested that Hungary’s ruling Fidesz Party should be expelled from the European People’s Party (EPP) group.
During the 20 March gathering of the European People’s Party (EPP), Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban and his ruling Fidesz Party could face “renewed calls” for their expulsion from the EPP, The Guardian reports.

Juncker’s remarks were triggered by Fidesz’s new campaign accusing the European Commission president of collaborating with Hungarian-born billionaire George Soros in order to facilitate immigration, impose mandatory refugee resettlement quotas, and undermine EU member-states’ right to border security.
